Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

The roar of around 200 mo­tor­cy­cle en­gines was a fit­ting send-off for keen biker Gra­hame ’Bear’ Fisher.

Col­leagues joined his fu­neral pro­ces­sion as it weaved through coun­try lanes in Ap­ple­dore, Bethers­den and Wood­church on its way to Char­ing Cre­ma­to­rium yes­ter­day (Wed­nes­day).

The mass cortege, in­volv­ing four mo­tor­cy­cle clubs, left from Mr Fisher’s home in Snar­gate, on Rom­ney Marsh, at 10am, for the ser­vice at 11.20am.

Mr Fisher died sud­denly, aged 55, in the Wil­liam Harvey Hos­pi­tal on Tues­day, June 18.

He was a well-known Rom­ney Marsh biker who had been in sev­eral biker groups, in­clud­ing the 75 Club, which was in­volved in the or­gan­i­sa­tion of yes­ter­day’s pro­ces­sion.
